Collectible News: New Transformers Hallmark ornament and itty bittys coming in 2017

One of the mainstays at New York Comic-Con is Hallmark. While best known for greeting cards, the company has also become a creator of collectibles over the years in the form of both their ornaments and more recently their plush "itty bittys" line. At NYCC 2016 their booth displayed both an image (via a cardboard cutout) of the 2017 Christmas ornament: Soundwave! Like the three previous ornaments this will be modeled on the G1 action figure.

This year's New York Comic-Con 2016 experience has already revealed a bunch of Transformers news, but this event is huge and encompasses a ton of other media. One example is the upcoming "Death Race 2050" film by Roger Corman. This film is a reimagining of the classic "Death Race 2000" film starring Manu Bennett (of "Arrow" and "Shannara Chronicles" fame). Yesterday evening fans were treated to a trailer, ten minutes of the film and a panel with Manu Bennett and Roger Corman. Afterward there was an autograph signing!
